Praying for Better Conditions

A report by the Bench Marks Foundation, a church-linked organization that monitors corporate responsibility, found that living conditions for South Africa's platinum miners are the worst in the country.

"This is no way to live or grow children. Fifty people share one toilet. We don't have water," the wife of a striking rock drill operator who shares a one-room tin box with her husband and two children told Reuters.
